In the Courtyard

11 yrs 97 minutes 2014 6.3

The silent and depressed musician Antoine changes career and becomes a caretaker in a residential building in Paris. Here he becomes acquainted with the anxious tenant Mathilde. It will be the start of a friendship that very well might save them both from going mad. “The film In the Courtyard holds both comedy and tragedy, combined in that glorious way that only talented directors in line with congenial actors can achieve”, writes Björn G Stenberg in Uppsala Nya Tidning. Fredrik Strage writes that “it was a long time since mental illness were portrayed so precisely and subtlety. As Mathilde, Catherine Deneuve manages to make the line between normal and sick anxiety seem scarily thin.”
